im playing a lot heavy/melodic stuff currently in drop d with my band and was considering buying a 7 string. im not sure where to start, ive looked at some schecters and ibanez 7 strings but they are expensive and i want to find something cheaper but still good quality

they have good quality, features, and are pretty inexpensive.

if you were wanting to get one for really cheap just to see if you like 7s, id suggest a washburn wg587 or an ibby 7321/7621. you can find those for near $200. otherwise, rondo is indeed a good place to look. havent tried any of their 7s but i have an 8er and its amazing.

7 String+ ERG Legion!!

LTD Snakebyte
Agile AL-727
ESP Horizon
Warmoth Swirled 7
Schecter C-1 Classic
Laney Ironheart 60w + Avatar Cab

If I can't find a good deal on a Schecter or an Ibanez, I may just go with an Agile. I think the odds of finding an LTD or Dean 7 string I like are pretty low.
what is your budget?

Crickets have too much high end for my tastes. I prefer a nice beetle, lots of warm low end.

tl;dr put a beetle in your amp for superior toanz.

dude ibanez do a 7 for 400. any cheaper than that, and its firewood. trust me, if youre looking for a 7 for 300, youre in a for a shock when you see how low the quality is.

i definately dont wanna compromise price for quality and i want to spend somewhere between $400 and $800, i would buy an agile in a heartbeat but theres nowhere to test one out and i havnt heard much about the company. i currently hav a gibson les paul classic and a fender strat and they arent rly gettin the job done on some of the heavier stuff im playin. i can get a pretty sick metal sound out of my mesa lonestar but need a more metal style guitar
why would you need a 7 string if you're just doing drop D in your band? unless the band tunes down with you, or you put in a high A instead of having a low B, or you just feel like using it on your free time, a 7 string wouldn't be very helpful for you. unless you actually do the string swap i mentioned earlier

you're not gonna want to take a dump in a gross, off-colored, vintage toilet. you want something that is white and pearly; something that shines. something that you can put your cheeks against and say, "f*** yeah"
right now my band has a vocalist sing/scream, two guitarists and a drummer and keys player. my other guitarist is buyin a 7 string too but also undecided. we dont wanna spend a whole lot cuz we both hav fairly expensive "normal" electric guitars, but wanna let our playing styles branch out as we hav a large range of influences anywhere from alesana to born of osiris and a huge variety in between.
check out the schecter damien elite
similar to a hellraiser but its emg 81&85 7 string version which is a 1st from schecter from what i've seen and a bolt on neck
its $549 or something around there
